RYZE Tip Off Classic 15U Top Performers Pt. 1



DeVaughn Brown, Garner Road 3SSB

Brown is a floor general that is beyond his years in terms of his poise, style of play, and ability to run the show. He makes good reads with the ball in his hands, can score the ball from every level, and is a very good passer with the ability to set up teammates for buckets. His skills as a true floor general are very apparent and will bode well for him moving forward.


Sean Van Dorn, AE5 2025

Van Dorn was a huge part of AE5's run to the 15U Platinum championship. He's got great size and athleticism for a young prospect and did most of his work getting to the bucket and finishing around the rim. He also threw down the best dunk of the weekend on an electrifying alley-oop on Sunday. Overall he averaged over 15 points per game and was one of the most physically imposing players in the division.


Lawrence Sanford, GSW Warriors

Sanford will be another guy to watch for in the future in Cherokee County. He's able to play both guard spots and is a fluid and smooth scorer off the dribble. He plays with great pace and changes speeds very well, giving him the ability to beat opposing defenders off the bounce and get to his spots and convert. He ended the weekend as the leading scorer in the 15u division at over 20 points per game.


Xavious Nalls, Rome Hawks

Nalls was fantastic scoring the ball all weekend, and he did most of his work from beyond the three point line. He averaged over 19 points per game on the weekend, and connected on 14 threes in four games. He was particularly good on Sunday, scoring 25 and 30 points in Rome Hawks' two games.


Jalen Leonard, Team Huncho

Leonard was a huge standout for Team Huncho on the weekend and was a big part in their run to the championship game of the Platinum bracket on Sunday. He has great size and versatility at 6-foot-4 and seemingly plays every position on the floor. Opposing teams had a tough time containing his physicality off the bounce and he consistently got into the paint and converted, averaging over 17 points per game.


Cam'ren Reyes, Garner Road 3SSB

Reyes was the scorer in Garner Road's great backcourt. He averaged over 18 points per game and is a pure scorer and bucket getter. He's very athletic and quick and loves to use the bounce to get to the spots he wants to get where he knows he can score the ball. He's always aggressive in looking for his scoring and always keeps his foot on the gas.


Cooper Heller, OTP

Heller could be a name to remember in Cherokee County for the future. He was one of the top scorers in the division at 20 points per game, and he showed the ability to get buckets in a wide variety of ways. He found success both on and off the ball, getting to the rim and also shooting it well from three. Overall, he had a very impressive weekend scoring the ball.


Ty Harpring, Atlanta Timberwolves

With a year of varsity basketball at Blessed Trinity under his belt, Harpring is an advanced scorer for a 15u prospect. He shot the ball well from three on the weekend, making 2.5 threes per contest, but he shined using the dribble and creating for himself. He averaged 18.5 points per game on the weekend, one of the top outputs in the 15u division.
